Travel the Baltics
Nestled together on the coast of the Baltic Sea, the Baltic States consist of three countries: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. The region bursts with medieval history, boasting castles and cathedrals from the 14th century. Annual festivals and markets showcase their traditional folk cultures.
Vilnius, Lithuania's capital for more than 600 years, features a restored city center and dozens of historic churches and cathedrals. Siauliai, northern Lithuania, is home of the Hill of Crosses: hills crowded with thousands of crosses, crucifixes, and statues left by Catholic pilgrims. Riga, capital of Latvia, is the largest city of the Baltic states, a World Heritage Site. The capital of Estonia, Tallinn, a blend of medieval and modern, its Old Town on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
